Review summary

First, we left the port of Miami almost 3 hours late and the captain had to make up for lost time so he sped the ship up for the first 24 hours which cause most on the ship to get seasick. Our Balcony room was super small with a stand up shower that had no room anyone to turn around in. The Balcony was small and the food on this ship was awful. The room service didn't include any drinksuggestions other than orange juice and apple juice. All the restaurants on the ship closed at 11pm except for one Pizza joint that had 2 workers who had to cook for a ship that had 4000 people on it. Not much of a variety of food at all and our 6pm dinner menu was exactly the same every night switching out only one item each night. The inclusive dinning restaurants, such as the Mongolian Wok, was only open from 12-2:30 so most people, like myself and family, didn't get the chance to enjoy one of the restaurants we looked forward to eating at the most. In fact we got there 12:15 pm and still was told there was hour wait. Is it worth an hour standing in a line for a restaurant that is going to be closing while you're eating???? We didn't get to go to all our port of calls because they claim bad weather conditions held us back from docking in Turks and Chacos. So our first two days on this ship were sea days....I just wanted off the boring ship. The sky ride and water slides were closed for most of the cruise due to high winds so the children didn't have much to do except stay in camp. I do not recommended cruising on this ship, it is a big waste of money.
